There's still time to celebrate St Patrick's Day in Dublin
What better way to take in the holiday than in Ireland after all? And if you're quick, you'll be able to land in time for tonight's programme, which includes the Festival Ceili. If you fancy a boogie then this is certainly the event for you as it encourages all and sundry to give Irish dancing a try, all in time to some traditional music. If you're up for it, head to St Stephens Green from four in the afternoon and you're sure to have a rip-roaring good time!
That's all according to Vera Stedman of Tourism Ireland who is quite rightly lauding Dublin as the place to be this year.
"The biggest event itself is the parade on St Patrick's Day," she said. "The parade stretches for three kilometers. Considering Dublin is actually a very compact city it takes over the centre of the city completely."
If you're concerned you won't fit in, don't panic as Vera is adamant that all tourists are welcome, particularly as around one million people will participating in the affair all around the Emerald Isle. Joy of joys! If you're up for a bit of a brisk march, for example, you can traverse the countryside on the 17th as part of the St Patrick's County Down walk.
